  1. I’ve always wondered what holds those nests together. They are a joy to discover. We have one in our Virginia creeper, I noticed. Stay warm!

    • Weaving! We pick a good spot with lots of branches to support a nest, then weave smaller branches through them and then pack the whole thing with leaves and moss, anything fallen to the forest floor. If that nesting spot doesn’t hold together, we just change to a new one. Squirrels are kind of flexible that way.

Drop us a nut to find!
